I n last week’s post I talked about breaking down. I looked at a passage from Part 20 of Haanel’s Master Key.
“To become inspired means to get out of the beaten path, out of the rut, because extraordinary results require extraordinary means. When we come into the recognition of the Unity of all things and that the source of all power is within, we tap the source of inspiration.”
Upon reading this quote again this week I can say that I believe that one of my tires have blown, veering me off the beaten path I have been on. Let me explain.
I have been struggling with my weight for years because of a health issue I had for quite some time and although I am healthy now I have not been able to gain weight… yes you read correctly, I said gain weight. One of my True Health goals is to be fit at 150lbs, healthy and full of energy. The first date I had set to achieve this goal was December 30th 2015, I missed the mark. I was a little disappointed but when I re-read this part of my DMP I knew I wasn’t 100% committed to achieving it. So I decided to keep my promise to myself this time. I revised my SMART goals. I decided to commit a workout program, P90X3, for six days a week for 90 days. I decided to increase my food intake from three to five times a day. And I set a new date to achieve this which was February 22nd, 2016.
Approximately five weeks ago I set this new goal. Every time I looked at a red circle, I would repeat, “fit at 150lbs, healthy and full of energy before February 22nd, 2016, I read it in my DMP, I visualised it in my mind as well, and most of all I applied my plan of action. Well, when February 22nd came around I almost forgot about the date I had set for my goal, and when I remembered I was a little reluctant to stand on the scale, but I did, and I was surprised! One hundred and fifty pounds! Not only that, I also feel fit and full of energy, I did it and I’m only five weeks into the program.
This accomplishment has set in motion within me a belief, in myself that with clearly defined goals repeated, visualised, thought upon, listened to, read constantly, charged with feelings and linking, I can achieve anything I put my mind to, keeping in mind that it has to be in harmony with the fundamental laws of nature. My conscious mind takes these thoughts and allows them to penetrate my subconscious mind which goes to work on anything presented to it, manifesting it into something tangible.
All the assignments and exercises that we’ve been asked to do for the MKMMA course, the countless times being asked to “trust the process”, are helping me understand how my mind operates and how to use it effectively.
In Part 21 of the Master Key Haanel explains the importance of thinking big thoughts:
7. This is one of the secrets of success,one of the methods of organizing victory, one of the accomplishments of the Master-Mind. He thinks big thoughts. The creative energies of the mind find no more difficulty in handling large situations, than small ones. Mind is just as much present in the Infinitely large as in the Infinitely small.
8. When we realize these facts concerning mind we understand how we may bring ourselves any condition by creating the corresponding conditions in our consciousness, because anyhting which is held for any length of time in the consciousness, eventuaully becomes impressed upon the subconscious and thus becomes a pattern which the creative energy will wave into the life and environment of the individual.
I am putting this same effort into the rest of my goals like I put towards one of my True Health goals. I know I will see the results I have been asking for. Like I had mentioned earlier I am understanding more how my mind operates and how to use it effectively. And although things are now starting to come together at a much faster pace, this old train of mine is breaking down, so I can take a walk around, and see what there is to see…
